released in collaboration with megahertz.

this very first klangstabil release 'senden und empfangen' was originally published by the german label shokoy on 12" vinyl in 1995, limited to 999 copies. the sounds of fm transmissions, manipulated voices, harsh synths and distorted beats resulted in dark, minmalistic industrial soundscapes. even though, surprisingly, the project was not influenced by this genre at all. the vinyl version is long since deleted, so this important klangstabil release is now available again, this time in a digital format.

the project 'transmit and receive' ('senden und empfangen') introduced a new standard to the underground scene and is of interest even to people who have never had anything to do with pure electronic music. because they seek a true, intense sound, klangstabil concentrated mainly on analogue tools for this release. Specifically choosing to work without a computer-controlled sequencer. uncompromisingly individualistic, the artists pressed their impressions onto hallowed black vinyl and eschewed all influences from the commercial world.


senden und empfangen
this track is an introduction to klangstabil's world. it shows a clear outline of frequencies that are sent out and received by us permanently.

what could have influenced the artists to do this particular piece of work? the answer: brainwaves! literally: highs and lows that leave no corner of the brain in the dark, and a constant beat makes this track very danceable.

irregular beats mixed with acid elements resulting in a more minimalistic style and put together with excellent presentation.

wir telephonieren
based on the daily use of the telephone; in connection with the theme of 'transmit and receive' (senden und empfangen). these ideas are supported and expressed with sounds that make the concept more inspiring for the listener. the chaos of voices and sounds present a powerful contradiction to the constant beat of the drum.
